Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

Reconfigure Linkys G Wireless Router

I have recently purchased fast access DSL from AT&T. I previously was with Comcast and have been experiencing trouble connecting to the internet. I can connect as long as I bypass the router and have been told by AT&T that it is a Linksys problem. I have contacted Linksys and have been told that I need to reconfigure the router for AT&T rather than Comcast. It was at this point they told me my router was out from its warranty and that they would help me if I was to purchase tech support from them for $29.99 (one time) or 39.99 for six months. They of course recommended the latter. Doesn't seem to me to be a question of warranty so if someone could help me with reconfiguring my router I would be most appreciative.

  1. Make sure that your modem is connected to the WAN port of the router and your computer is connected to one of the 4 ports of the router.
  2. Check the IP address that your computer obtained from the router. To do that, go to control panel>network connections.
  3. Right click on Local Area Connections and click status. Then click support and look for IP address.
  4. The IP address of the computer should be in 192.168.1.x.
  5. Then, access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1.
  6. It will then ask for a username and password. By default there is NO username and the password is admin.
  7. Once you're in setup page, set Internet connection type to PPPoE.
  8. You should have the username and password from ATnT.
  9. Save the settings afterwards and check your Internet connectivity through the router.
Hope this helps!

I think you should reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
Press and hold the reset button on the router for 30 seconds. Release the reset button and wait for 30 seconds.
Power cycle the router and reconfigure it manually.

If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and configure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it'sEthernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URLhttp://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
LinkSys Default Password
On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." While newer models, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you go past the login screen, you should be able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default usernames:

Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Ethernet routers: Administrator
Linksys WRT54G, BEFW11S4: admin
Linksys Comcast routers: comcast
All other Linksys routers: {none}
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default passwords:
Linksys Comcast routers: 1234
Linksys BEFW11S4: {none}
All other Linksys routers: admin
For those [none] username/password entries listed above, no name or password is required. Just skip or press the Enter/Return key when prompted for those settings.

I have LINKSYS G 2.4 GHz i can not open with 192.168.1.1 since I have not a valid code. My previous e-mail was che@bahnhof.se an present c.h.ekelof@telia.com


If the router password is not working then you will need to reset the rotuer and reconfigure the router.
Once you reset the router , you will lose all the settings of the router.
Press and hold the reset button on the router for 30 seconds. Release the button and wait for 10 seconds. Now power cycle the router.
Try to access the router using 192.168.1.1. Use admin as a password and leave the user name blank.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router.

Can a actiontec gateway wireless DSL router be connected to a comcast cable modem?I have an old DSL wireless router (gateway), can I use this as my wireless router with comcast cable internet, or do i need...


You could do it, but it's a bit of a pain in the ***** and probably not worth the hassle.
Actiontec DSL gateway was not designed to act as a "proper" router and therefore you won't be able to make it act like one permanently (well, unless there's a hacked firmware out there somewhere ;).
Of course, since it runs linux, you can telnet into it and manually set up the ip addresses on both wireless/wired interfaces and the necessary route between them. It will then work as a wireless access point for your comcast cable modem, but any changes will be lost every time you reboot the actiontec.
I've done it in the past with similar setup but quickly got tired of having to console the actiontec to add the ips and routes every time it crashed -and eventually got a proper wireless router.
So-it can be done, just not easily.
Have fun,
Raf

Current dlink basic want to use dling DI 514


If you want to use your former router, you just have to connect the previous router in between your modem and computer. Try turning off all the devices (modem, router and computer) for 2 minutes. Then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to be stable then turn on the router. When the router lights are okay that is the time that you can turn on the computer and check the internet connection.

If the Internet connection still has not come back, you will have to reconfigure it for Comcast connection. You can try using the setup CD or access the setup wizard using 192.168.0.1. User name is admin and leave the password empty then run the wizard.

Problem with connection to router and DSL


I would go to run and type in cmd. then type in ipconfig, I believe that is right for windows 98. I would look on there and see if that is getting a correct IP and if the DNS server says 192.168.0.1 if it is a belkin router. ipconfig /? will give you the commands you can use with that. There is a ipconfig /renew that will refresh them all. You might have it set to be a static IP and you would want it to be dynamic and have it refresh by itself. You can go to http://hippo.colorado.edu/info/ipsetup/staticip_setup.cgi?os=win98 for directions to change it to dynamic, I would just do the opposite of what they suggest to make it auto config. It sounds like it is looking for a previous DNS server which is not there anymore because the DSL connection reset.
